Oh, there you are!

07 January 2012

Eight jobs, different outcome.

The first six were female and 55yrs or much older and transported.
82F - Regular dialysis pt.
86F - Haematuria.
55F - Dialysis pt who has had both her arm fistulas fail and had received a groin one and it has ruptured causing a huge contusion compartment syndrome issues and extreme pain.
90F - Decreasing health, the family did accept that she is old, but the first reflex is to call for an ambulance for a trip to an Emergency Department for not an emergency.
83F - GI upset for the last twelve days. Again these symptoms of constant nausea and watery stool without any previous investigation with colonoscopy or endoscopy, dietary changes, nothing! Ring and ambulance for a light and sirens response for a pt who walked past her sons car to the ambulance and went to the waiting room because it's not an emergency.
64F - Mechanical fall and an injured hip non weight bearing without shortening or rotation. Needs an x-ray and our extrication skills.


20M - IP suffering a severe attack of Knobititius (a severe form of being a knob) and Wankeration (someone who should have left his privates alone). Told the arresting Cops he was having an asthma attack, to allow them to safely contain him in a cell to sober up we get called to diagnose this. He's an oxygen thief maybe but not an asthmatic the way he's abusing every other person in the world for his life. I strongly believe that even sober he's not a very nice person. Stayed with them.
40M - Arrested, not getting bail and with a $400 per day Heroin habit and 18hrs since he last used it's starting to hurt. Checked him out for the Charge Sergeant so they can process him to Corrective Services who have a Duty RN who should be able to provide some  Benzo's to help with the withdrawal.

See you at the big One.

Thanks , I've just been searching for info approximately this topic for a while and yours is the greatest I've came upon so far. But, what about the bottom line? Are you certain about the supply?
